How It Works

Every month your clients and prospective clients receive a personalised e-newsletter (view a sample here) sent to them via e-mail under your firm's compliments slip. The information in CA(SA)DotNews is short, simple and topical - information of practical interest and value to your clients, information that will encourage them to seek your advice and assistance. You will also receive the 'Accountant version' of CA(SA)DotNews before the 'Client version' is sent to your clients. The 'Accountant version' has case and other references for your use only with hyperlinks to our source material on the Internet.

Discounted Pricing

SAICA urges members to take advantage of the discounted price which it has negotiated for members - this highly effective and very professional marketing tool is designed specifically to benefit small and medium practices. There is a one-off set up charge of R500 excluding VAT. Thereafter all you pay is a monthly subscription fee of R495 excluding VAT for up to 500 clients (or R745 excluding VAT for 501 - 1,000 clients; please ask us to quote for larger client lists).


Full details of the system are on the CA(SA)DotNews website. You can choose which newsletter option is best for your firm by comparing them here and viewing samples here.
